Critic Reviews for Mama's Boy

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (1) | Rotten (11)

  • It's not that the movie is utterly bereft of arresting moments. It's just that each of these prominently features one of the aforementioned supporting cast and not the so-called star.

    Dec 14, 2007 | Rating: 1.5/4
  • Matters quickly regress into an antic romantic comedy, potentially buoyed by a strong cast but soon thwarted by a screenplay as leaden as it is predictable.

  • Haphazardly conceived and clumsily executed, this aggressively quirky yet gratingly unfunny comedy appears set on the fast track to vidstore bins.

  • When the writer's this far off, the actors and the audience pay the price.

  • ...there's certainly no understating the ineffectiveness of Heder's relentlessly (and irritatingly) over-the-top performance...

    May 21, 2009 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Ana Faris is the best thing in this predictable, often silly Jon Heder movie about a spoilt son trying to sabotage his mother's new relationship

    Lazy, predictable, and bland, Mama's Boy is a wimp.

    Mama's Boy is dumb, completely ridiculous and tries much too hard to be funny. Nothing can be saved, except the actors, for being in this garbage. This should not have been made!

    This was pretty stupid. It had a couple funny parts, but not many.

    Whoever recommended this movie to me, I ask why? I felt bad for Diane Keaton because she was probably asking herself why was I in this movie too. Jon Heder can't be Napolean Dynomite in every movie. Watch only if you have nothing better to watch and even then ask yourself why.
